  • Still on the Hill builds on their reputation as ‘ambassadors of the Ozarks’ with this collection of story songs of the Buffalo River. The river was scheduled to be dammed in the late 60s but a state-wide uprising prevented this fate and it became our nation’s first historic river--a National Park to flow free for all time. Still a River celebrates this pristine river and its rich treasure trove of stories in the form of song. This folk duo comprised of Kelly and Donna Mulhollan have deep Ozark roots and both are powerful instrumentalists, vocalists, and songwriters. They have been recognized by the State of Arkansas for their work and received the Governor’s Folk Life Award in 2009. This project was funded by the Buffalo River Watershed Alliance, the Ozark Society, and the community of NW Arkansas. Release Date: 2016
  • The Buffalo Flows is a one-hour documentary film written and produced by two-time Emmy award winning filmmaker Larry Foley, Professor of Journalism at the University of Arkansas. The film is narrated by Academy Award winner Ray McKinnon, an actor and film director who calls Little Rock home. Trey Marley of Fayetteville does a masterful job of capturing the river's magnificent beauty over four seasons, while Emmy Award winning documentary filmmaker Dale Carpenter, also a professor at the U of A, lends his talent as the film's editor. "This story is like the old song, 'Big Rock Candy Mountain.' There's not just one thing that makes the Buffalo so special—so unique," said Foley. "When the 'Battle for the Buffalo' was won, protecting the river from being dammed, we saved a national, natural treasure.”
